Apple Invests in Solar Farms

Apple recently set an excellent example of how to reinvest company profit. The Californian company has made a clear decision to invest in renewable energy by announcing an investment of 850 million dollars to construct a solar energy plant which would allow it to create its own energy supply.

Solar Energy

The news of its solar energy investment doesn’t stop at only building the plant. The company has also announced it intends to invest 2 billion dollars to convert an abandoned glass factory into a data storage center (also supplied with solar energy).

In addition to guaranteeing an inexpensive energy supply for its facilities, with this move, Apple has made a strong statement about its support for renewable energy. We also heard this a few weeks back from the company’s CEO, Tim Cook when he said, “at Apple we know climate change is real”.

Impact on the Stock Market

For those who were skeptical about the impact of Apple’s latest investments on the stock market: following the announcement of its solar energy investment, the value of the company’s shares rose. It is also forecast to enjoy considerable energy savings over the long term. This makes Apple’s investment a very intelligent move.

THE FORGOTTEN IMPORTANCE OF BRANDING IN DIGITAL ADVERTISTING

eMarketer’s recent projection that said US Digital Display Ad Spending will Surpass Search Ad Spending in 2016 , led me to think that finally Branding is being given the importance it deserves in digital media.   If we analyze the sources of growth in eMarketer’s projection , these seem to support my assumption.   Video, Sponsorships, and […]

AirBnB vs. Marriott: How come it could be worth more?

In one of my last blog entries, I wrote about Uber.   This time, I am writing about AirBnb, a marketplace selling accommodations. An article on the Wall Street Journal caught my attention: It seems that AirBnB is worth more than Marriott International with its 4,000 hotels under management and US$13.8bn in revenue.  In contrast, AirBnB […]
